First and Last

Kitten watches the ice cube dissolve
Swallowed by the surrounding water
of his steel saucer
He sees
the skeletal crystal shell
carve its clockwise course
and spiral from the center out
to the edges.
He stares, fixates
as the tiny frozen sliver clings to the side of his dish for
that final second when
the last remnants of its cloudy matrix disappear into nothingness
His hollow eyes search inquisitively for the substance of 
what once was.
I share his first experience with endings.
